Learn how to make a beautiful, strippy-striped quilt with instructor Chelsea Hard. Find out how much fun it can be to make your very own quilt! This class is perfect if you have never sewn a quilt before and want to have a finished quilt in time for the holidays.
Chelsea will walk you through quilt-making basics including:
- Using a sewing machine
- How to properly use a rotary cutter and ruler
- Design layout
- Accurate piecing skills
- How to baste your quilt
- Using a walking foot to quilt your quilt
You will leave class with a finished (or nearly finished!) quilt and the confidence to take on more complicated patterns and techniques. You will also get a free day pass to the studio to come and sew during an Open Sew session.
Skill level: ✂️
You've seen a sewing machine before, but you've never played with one, or if you have given it a try, you'd really love a little extra help to make sure you're doing it correctly.
Supplies: You will need the following supplies for class.
- Jelly Roll: A jelly roll is a pack of precut 2.5 inch strips usually of 40 different fabrics
- Backing Fabric: 4 yards of fabric for the back of your quilt.
- Binding Fabric: ½ yard of fabric.
- Batting: Twin sized package (or purchase by the inch from Hello Stitch)
